Looking Back: 2012 Review Catch up - 5 Star Books

What better way to start the New Year than to tackle unfinished items from the previous year.  Last year I went through a short, ok long, period where I was reading a lot and not writing reviews. So I thought I would do a couple quick posts to give shout outs to some great books that didn’t get the attention they deserved. This post is for books that I rated 5 out of 5 stars. I very much enjoyed these books and I highly recommend them.

Full Blooded (Jessica McClain #1) by Amanda Carlson 
I was sucked into Amanda Carlson’s writing after reading Blooded (Jessica McClain .5) and I really look forward to book #2, Hot Blooded, in 2013.

  1. I have a bunch from 2012 I didn't get to review either. I want to read Storm too. Glad you liked it. And Unearthly is probably my favorite Angel story too.

    1. Yes! Storm is great, I hope you decide to read it.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
